Here’s what Wine Spectator Italian editor Alison Napjus had to say about the Cantele Salice Salentino, a wine she included in her “best value” round up last year.
Cantele Salice Salentino
Juicy flavors of ripe wild strawberry and red licorice mark the start to this light- to medium-bodied red, with supple tannins lending some structure and weight. Savory accents of garrigue, loamy earth and star anise echo on the finish.
The wine was also recommended by Wine Spectator senior editor Tim Fish in his recent Memorial Day recommendations for summer grilling. Click here for his article (subscribers only).
